    Paying from your cc and getting it in your PayPal is fine.

    Yes you can order the product with any payment method. Be sure to notify the seller that you're dropshipping so that no information is leaked to the buyer through the courier packet.

    Some guys are playing smart and waiting for 3 days before Paypal releases the funds, and then pay from Paypal itself.

    Goodluck & congrats for sales.

    Ah my bad, I meant once they can withdraw their funds from Paypal after the 3 day hold.
    Apologies mate.

    I would stay away from PayPal. I've had a lot of problems with them holding money. If your using shopify use their payments just make sure you add the tracking to the orders and expect to have to send them your info. I've only had shopify payments hold money one time and that was when the site was just started. Using your credit card is fine for orders. You may run into aliexpress wanting you to send all your info in, like id and bank statements. I've only had this on bigger orders being delivered outside of the country the card is from. I always manually type the card in instead of using Alipay. Alipay can take a while to say the orders been paid for, making the processing time longer.
    Good luck dropshipping can be hard to get going but when it picks up its definitely worth it.

    2checkout is one of many alternatives to PayPal for accepting CC

    It's easy to say stay away from Paypal but can you? I know it's the shittiest thing ever but it's also the most popular. Better to get used to this dichotomy.

    Also sometimes you have to think from a buyer's point of view. They love Paypal and there's more reason than one.

    I'm using shopify to host my site. They have their own payment gateway through stripe. I keep Paypal express as an option it seems to make people feel more comfortable because I've taken paypal completely off and saw conversions go down, but the majority still use the shopify gateway. Look up different gateways and see which have the lowest rates. 2checkout and authorize.net are two that come to mind. You won't have instant payments with shopify or the other gateways like you would with paypal. The moneys usually deposited three days from the order.

    Make sure you use a credit card with cashback on paypal if you purchase with paypal gets you a few extra $ back.

    Whatever you do, don't wait too long. You don't want to get hit by chargebacks/complaints/refunds.

    OP's system is just about right-use your CC to order the items from AliExpress.
